As announced previously, author J.K. Rowling is making three appearances here in the US on the “Open Book Tour,” with stops in New York, Los Angeles and New Orleans. On three of these appearances select schools were chosen to see the Harry Potter author at an appearance where she will read from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, answer questions and autograph copies of the final Harry Potter book for lucky schoolchildren. Last week the schools in New York City for the Scholastic sponsored event with JKR on October 19 were announced, and today the 40 schools in Los Angeles, California were announced. According to CBS2, “a student from each of the 40 schools will attend the event based on an essay contest” at this appearance with 15 high schools, 15 middle schools and 10 elementary schools all part of those chosen to participate in this event on October 15.

A bit disappointing that they only considered public schools from the LA Unified School District. There are many, many private schools and other public school districts within LA that could have been included.

Congratulations to all the lucky fans that may see her! I must say, I am pleased to hear that she is going to New Orleans. The young children affected by Katrina definitely are more worthier of this than any other district in this country.
